New Delhi, September 27: A journey is much more beautiful than the destination. And it’s true. The journey gives us satisfaction and so does travelling. On this World Tourism Day, let’s forget about the top 10 destinations in the world. In fact, we all know deep inside that every place has its own charm, be it a village scattered in ruins or a small tired town with unbelievable architecture. Let’s celebrate ‘travel experiences’ and its importance on this World Tourism Day, 2017.
Speaking on this exciting day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi encouraged people to travel, not only in abroad by in our 'Incredible India' too. In his inspiring speech in ‘Mann Ki Baat’, he asked the young generation to travel enough in understanding life. Other public figures also came into his support on this statement. Every minister urged people to visit the mesmerizing states of India by sharing some gorgeous pictures.
India has an array of exotic locations that can leave one spellbound- from the trails of architectural pasts to the tranquility that hills, luscious mountains and wildlife experiences offer. Respecting the nature and its beauty, we all know about the gruesome incidents of natural calamities happening in the world around. The main motive to celebrate this day (September 27) by United Nations World Tourism Organization is to celebrate the social, cultural, political and economic value of international tourism. And so, this year, the reputed organization focused on ‘Travel, Enjoy, and Respect’.
It’s indispensable for all of us to travel somewhere, within the country or outside borders. It helps to relax and rejuvenate our bodies, more of a ‘physical detox’. Let’s seek out the world beyond and dive right into in.
5 life-changing benefits of travelling so you can take the leap of faith you’ve been waiting for.
• You’ll appreciate your home more: “All travel has it’s advantages. If the passenger visits better countries, he may learn to improve his own. And if fortune carries him to worse, he may learn to enjoy it.” – Samuel Johnson. When you spend time in an isolated island with no easy accessible services and Facebook, that’s the time when you realize the real value of your home. Traveling through areas like that really make us appreciate what we have in our lives, and can often spark the movement of something to support people living there experience a greater quality of life.
• You’ll find a new purpose: “To travel is to take a journey into yourself.” – Danny Kaye. Traveling is an amazingly underrated investment in yourself. As you travel you’re exposed to more new people, cultures, and lifestyles than you are living in your homeland all the time. With all the newness in your life, you’re also opened to new insights, ways of seeing the world and living, which often gives people a new purpose for their lives. Try this when you’re confused about what career choices to make.
• You’ll be star-struck with the greatness of the world: Star-gazing on a rooftop or on the seabed is inspirational. And yes, that’s the moment when you learn about the magnificence of the entire galaxy. Such experiences tend to make you grounded and grateful as a person because then you realize that we’re just a mere atom in this zenith-less galaxy.
• Improves your social skills: Something magical happens in how people can show up more raw and real when they’re out of their conditioned environment and open to express themselves without feeling judged. That rawness and realness ends up inspiring others to be authentic, and that’s how you can become best friends with people when you’ve only known them for a few hours.
• Moreover, you’ll realize life is a god’s gift: Life is a wonderful gift, consider it as ‘the heaven’. More often than not, this is a realization that we can experience and take action from now while we’re still alive with energy rather than stacking up regrets by the time we’re on our death bed. Rather than waiting until you’re saying “I wish I had”, live so you can say “I’m glad I did”.
